Just to let you know that we have spent the most amazing week. The hotels/lodges were of very good standing, and the sceneries were breathtaking. Special mention to Lankayan Island (which does not belong to your organisation I know :) but what an amazing island!!)
Thank you, we have nothing to complain. Regards.

I cannot thank Borneo Eco Tours, especially our guide Adrian, enough for the amazing time they gave me and our tour group in Borneo. Adrian appeared to be an expert in all aspects of the sites we visited, and was also very keen to learn more from us during the tour. The one thing that set BET apart from every other trip I've been on, is that I actually looked forward to the travelling. It was great to be able to sit back, and hear our guides give us detailed commentaries along our longer bus rides, as well as engage in general banter and humor with the group.
We stayed with BET for our 10-day journey across Labuan and Sabah, and the itinerary was extremely well managed. Any special requests or favours the group had along the way were catered for with pleasure.
If you're looking for a truly unique way to see East Malaysia, Borneo Eco Tours is definitely the way to go!

First of all I like to thank you for all the recommendations and arrangements. Nearly everything worked out very well and the trip exceeded our expectations. We had a wonderful time and consider ourselves to be very lucky, having seen orang utans, elephants, turtles and many other monkeys, birds etc. We also enjoyed and appreciated the guidance provided by your staff, in particular Stephen in Sukau Rainforest Lodge and Adam in Kota Kinabalu.

I have just returned from my Borneo trip. I wish to thank Borneo Eco Tours for an excellent work in understanding my requirements and expectations and turning them into an fine itinerary that included Lankayan Island, Sukau Rainforest Lodge and Borneo Rainforest Lodge. All with outstanding service, excellent hygiene and food and no least superb wild life spotting.
Sukau Rainforest Lodge is situated on the brink of Kinabatangan River. The rainforest surrounding the river is secondary and the sole access is by boat. The wildlife is fantastic and very concentrated. Wild life spottings are done by boat in the morning, late afternoon and night.
The gate to Borneo Rainforest Lodge is placed around an hour’s drive away from the lodge. No other settlements are closer to the lodge situated beautifully along a small river in the middle of the primary rainforest. Spottings are done by tracking around 2 hours in the morning and late afternoon and truck driving at night. The canopy trail can be used w/o a guide and is very recommendable.
While I really enjoyed the beauty of Lankayan Island and the resort there one should not go there based solely on high expectations to diving or turtle nestlings and hatchings.

We are both very impressed with how well organized our holiday has been. Every guide and driver has been fantastic and always willing and happy to answer all our questions. They used all opportunities for us to see as much as possible. The river cruises were brilliant. We also had a wonderful time in Langkayan. The snorkelling as excellent and we get to see a turtle nesting.
